Today is the UN International Peace Day. Put some good energy out into the Universe that there can be a lot more peace in the world from now on!
I just finished emptying the dehydrator of tomatoes and re-filling it with roasted sweet peppers. During the Middle Ages in Europe, tomatoes were called “love apples”. Isn’t that a great name for them!! Anyway, I dehyrated a bunch of red robin cherry tomatoes that had been cut in half and sprinkled lightly with garlic sesasoning before they were dried. Now that they are completely dehyrdrated the garlic seasoning has infused them and they are absolutely delicious. If you have a lot of tomatoes coming in from your garden harvest, dehydrate them as an easily, and space-saving, method of storage. When your ready to use them in winter, you can simply toss some into your spaghetti sauce, sprinkle them into pasta salad, or add them to cowboy chili. At our house we rarely have them long into the winter months, because they are just so tasty to eat plain that we snack on them while we’re watching a movie or take a bag of them with us on hikes.
